Tallit Band I
Offerings are being made for the building of the Tabernacle.
Tallit Band II
Artists and craftsmen work on the Tabernacle and the sacred objects associated with it.
Translation of Hebrew (Exodus 36, 1):
"And Bezalel and Oholiab shall work, and every wise-hearted man, for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the Lord hath commanded."
The neckband of the tallit is decorated with the traditional blessing, hand painted with gold-outlined, crowned, Hebrew lettering.
The tallit is shown on a background of cream wool blend. The tallit tzitziot (threads) are handspun.
A matching tallit bag, tefillin bag and kippah are also available. The tallit bag is made of cream wool blend and has a strip of painted silk running horizontally.
The tallit and all items are handmade.
